links for Thursday, 14 February

Here are several timely linked posts that are worth your time to read.  The choice is yours.

Insects dying off en masse

Will the next major die-off, or mass extinction event be of man’s own making?  It does appear that it will be so.  We thank Pam Vernon in New Zealand for bringing this recent, informative and troubling piece to our attention.

Tibet Independence Day

Not many of us were aware of the cyber attacks of Chinese hackers on websites that support Tibetan independence and which are in solidarity with the Tibetan people.  Well, as they say, turnabout is fair play.  The Anonymous group retaliated against Chinese websites recently, taking many of these down.  This is recent news here:

Tibet Gets Awesome Anonymous Support

Chinese students from mainland China are purposefully stifling freedom of speech at universities in the US and elsewhere on the taboo topic of the oppression the Tibetan people continue to suffer in Tibet.  Beware of these student and “cultural exchanges”, as these are means by which China spies on, and loots intellectual property from Westerners.

Dresden War Crime

It is now the 74th anniversary of the Allied war crime in Dresden, Germany, which occurred on both St. Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday in 1945, on the orders of Churchill.  This cannot go unacknowledged.  Thus, we include here 2 linked posts.  The first link is to our post of a year ago covering this topic.

And, the second link we share here is from a post earlier today from the Wear’s War blog.  Wear’s War is a blog site that addresses many facets of the history of World War II in Europe from a revisionist perspective, providing us many of the hidden and important facts that so few citizens are aware of.

    1. Thanks Digital Empire for your comment. Yes, it is a daunting task, and that is true also for Tibet. Yet, because of the Internet and blogs, more folks are being reached with the truth.

      Sadly, in Europe, especially in Germany, people who recently posted messages telling of a commemoration to mourn the dead were reported to authorities as being guilty of hate speech. This is Orwellian and Kafkaesque.
